A darkly tantalising contemporary retelling of the Hansel and Gretel fairy tale.
As a child, Gretchen’s twin sister was taken by a witch-like monster in the woods. Ever since, she and her brother, Ansel, have felt the long branches of the witch’s forest threatening to make them disappear too. When their stepmother casts them out as teenagers, they stumble upon a sleepy Southern town where they are invited to stay with Sophia Kelly at her sweet shop; a house of candied magic. In this idyllic place, the siblings start to forget their haunted past. But girls have been vanishing at Sophia’s annual chocolate festival, taken by the insatiable witch of Gretchen’s nightmares. Can Gretchen save herself and the girls of Live Oak? One thing is certain: a monster is coming, and it will never go away hungry…
